I'm not so sure.

I have seen that most people, acting in good faith, express positions 
that are in the beginning diverging, but that can be later on converging
 due to consideration of opportunity (least evil better than 
unachievable good).

And sometimes you have surprises, like the passage below from Karl:

Why do we think we have disagreement on this, it escapes me.

The NC already defined the "nominating body" (very close to Membership, 
IMHO) as something different from the GA-list in both nominations.

Personally, I posted at least a couple of messages saying that the 
Membership implies a "contract" with power and duties, that the 
participation on a mailing list does not, which makes the two bodies 
substantially different.

I assume that this is an element on which we have wide convergence.
